Take Five With Roger Aldridge
"Donut Music" is the latest composition of mine to be recorded. It's an extended piece for solo guitar. It was commissioned by Keith Calmes (fine classical and jazz guitarist in NJ) and is on his new CD All We Know is Now
. The piece draws upon various roots-based music styles including blues, Appalachian, tango, jazz and samba, as well as having touches of contemporary classical. What's your greatest fear when you perform?
Actually, I prefer to focus on composition and have others perform and record my music. I like to perform. But, I've felt for a long time that I have more to say in my writing than in my playing.Photo Credit
